UCONN sports is back and we suffered our first preemption of the school year on this show. Fortunately, we had an hour to play Joe Bussard's program in its entirety.
What a show it was! Once before early in Joe's run on Red Rooster Party I turned him loose on his jazz records (bear in mind Joe believes jazz ended in 1933.) Response to that show was subdued at best, so we put off doing another jazz show until this week when Joe cut loose with an hour of his hot jazz records, and the phone in the studio rang off the hook! (Actually it is a flashing light, so it was more like a Christmas tree)
We were so happy with the response, we will bring another of Joe's jazz programs to Red Rooster Party before too much longer -- perhaps another Sunday in September. So if you like this now-rare form of early American recorded music, stick with us.
The playlist is below. To listen again, click on this link or the link at the beginning of Joe's part of the playlist below.
